FLY ON THE WALL PRODUCTIONS is producing a documentary entitled, “For the Sake of the Children”, a 20 minute film that looks at the impact that the WWII Japanese-American internment had on mothers and how they raised their children during their incarceration and after.
Additionally, this film will examine the impact that the internees’ parenting had on their children and on the generations that followed – in particular the challenges, struggles, and circumstances that individuals from each subsequent generation have faced in shaping, integrating and reconciling their identities as Japanese-Americans.
WE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH US
- Nisei women who gave birth to children while at camp or who raised children up to the age of 12 while at camp
- Sansei women and men who were born while at camp or who were children up to the age of 12 while at camp
- Yonsei women and men whose grandmothers were internees
- Gosei women and men whose great grandmothers were internees
(PLEASE NOTE: Yonsei and Gosei do not need to be descendants from Poston. Their grandmothers could be from any of the other internment camps.)
Those that are interested in participating or would like more information about our project can contact the director, Joe Fox at Jfox@flywall.com.
